US Panamera Buyers Get Free Porsche Luggage as Apology

Porsche Panamera buyers from the US need to be a little more patient, as almost 200 cars are held in ports throughout the USA due to a problem with the vehicle’s keys and software. The cars will be fixed, but delivery will take a while longer.

The Germans figured out a nice way to apologize to the expectant owners. Porsche will give away a set of luggage to each one of the affected customers. And we’re not talking about any kind of luggage, but a Porsche-branded one, which has a price tag of $3,580. The free luggage is a way for Porsche to thank customers for their patience, a spokesman said, wrote.

The wait might has been painful, but it's nearly over, as a Porsche spokesman said on Monday that 72 cars have been fixed and arrived at dealerships this past weekend. Porsche expects the remaining 123 cars to be fixed and to reach dealerships by November 30.

The Porsche Panamera is assembled in Leipzig, Germany. The orders for America travel to one of four US ports where Porsches arrive: Brunswick, Baltimore, San Diego and Houston.

The Panamera is not the first sedan presented by the German automaker, as back in 1988 Porsche built a prototype called “989”. Due to the fact the sales of the 928 grand tourer went down, the four door project was scrapped. The Panamera is the first mass-produced sedan from Porsche which was launched in 2009 as a 2010 model.
